(This book) highlights with rare clarity black peoples' attempt to acquire wealth through entrepreneurship in a world often hostile to them. H-AFRICA This collection of essays is a thought-provoking contribution to the economic histories of both African and African American societies...it is the first major work to offer representative contributions from both camps. As such, it is likely to earn deserved recognition for bringing these historiographies into closer proximity, an idea long overdue. This is the beginning to what will no doubt be an extremely fruitful dialog. AFRICAN HISTORY, Vol 45, 2004 (This book) highlights with rare clarity black people's attempt to acquire wealth through entrepreneurship in a world often hostile to them. . . the book addresses issues not just dear to black people, but relevant to anyone interested in understanding economic and business relationships in a changing socioeconomic environment.
